• We leave the marina at the beginning of the mighty Waikato River and work our way along the bays of Great Lake Taupo with an informative and interesting short history of the area, it’s volcanic nature and settlement.
• Sit back and relax in comfortable seating on our spacious deck as we round the point to the famous Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings.
• Sail Barbary takes you right up close for the perfect shot of the 14-metre high rock art. You’re guaranteed amazing photo opportunities as you experience one of life’s instagram moments on this tour of cultural significance.
• Soak up the warm sun or go for a swim before you enjoy free refreshments at the Rock Carvings.
• As we depart from the carvings, roll up your sleeves, as you can take the wheel, help hoist the sails or just sit back and enjoy the view.
• We’re equipped for all conditions, including awesome warm ponchos.
• If the wind dies down, Sail Barbary’s quiet, eco-friendly electric engine kicks in. We have NZ’s only two commercially operated electric yachts.

Var ni kommer att vara

We sail out to Whakamoenga Point to see the famous Mine Bay Maori Rock Carvings. They are only accessible by water. Sail Barbary takes you right up close to the face of Ngatoroirangi for the perfect photo of the 14-metre high rock art. The main carving is the face of an 800 year old ancestor. It is surrounded by smaller sculptures depicting ancestors and kaitiaki (guardians). While it was carved in 1981 the designs used are ancient.

The property had a fantastic view of the lake that we all loved! Everything that we needed was available. There was plenty of space in the house for 5 adults to move around and relax. The location was super!

What a unique way to experience Lake Taupo! Couldn’t have picked a better adventure... my mother was a little hesitant at first, but once she experienced it, she can’t stop taking about how much she enjoyed it. Great views & pictures (my friends are jealous!), people and vessel. A must-do!!!

Chris, the captain was great. He kept everyone on the boat laughing as he shared stories of the area. Mike, his assistant was friendly and eager to answer any questions we had. We would highly recommend this experience. You definitely get your money’s worth. (Just Chris’ sense of humor alone, makes it worth it)

Nice excursions. Chris and Matt were great. Chris had very funny stories. It wasn't very windy so we didn't really sail but used the electric motor

Interesting and first sailing experience for me and I had a lot of fun. Enjoyed the scenery and took lots of pics. The staff are also friendly and helpful.

Great morning out on the water. The ponchos were a great, much needed touch due to the unexpectedly cold wind. Very pleasant day and great sights to see on the lake!
